What wonderful news to wake up to!
Becky Sandefur, one of the smartest, gentlest and most beloved contributors to our network has just gotten a MacArthur.
Her work has already reshaped our field, initially by demonstrating beyond doubt the utterly fragmented nature of the access to justice field, and including more recently by providing (with Tom Clarke of NCSC) a brilliant evaluation structure for “Roles Beyond Lawyers.” This link is to all the references to Becky on this blog.
Combined with last years immigration lawyer MacArthur, this suggests that someone in the ATJ field is one of their scouts.
This is just so well earned.
